The family recreation area at Kolben in Oberammergau has everything for an exciting and diverse day in the nature perserve of the Ammergauer Alps. There’s fun and action with the Alpine Coaster, playtime for the young ones on the mountain adventure playground and the Kobensattel Lodge with it’s singular view of Oberammergau and the Ammertal.

Kids’ Paradise

A day in a children’s paradise for the whole family!

Away from the noise and dust of regular life is the Kolbensattel. Idyllic and quiet, it’s the perfect place for families.


Hiker’s Paradise

Hiking keeps you young!

Old folk sayings have long held that hiking is good for you. It touchs on something long held as common knowledge and now it’s even been scientifically proven. New studies show: hiking at middle altitudes helps against the so-called „diseases of affluence.“ The reason behind it is Erythropoiesis, a process by which the bodies ability to transport oxygen is bettered by increased red blood cell production.


Live Music

Experience a summer filled with music in the musical paradise that is the Kolbensattel Lodge.

Live music in the mountains, either in the Kolbensattel Lodge or on the patio, depending on the weather. The concerts start May and run untill the beginning of October.


Church Services


Highlights under the free sky

The Kolbensattel offers a unique setting for mountain church services.

At 1,270 m above sea level, you can hold alpine masses in the unique natural scenery of the Ammergau Alps, on a site specially reserved for this purpose, away from the hustle and bustle. From the “alpine mass site” you have a nice view into the valley and the surrounding mountains. The site can be reached in approximately 10 min. from the exit of the Kolbensesselbahn chairlift, without obstacles or steps. Therefore, it is also suitable for wheelchair users and persons with mobility problems.

The ascent to the Kolbensattel can be undertaken conveniently with the Kolbensesselbahn chairlift oor on foot in approximately 1 hour via a forest road. There are two options for the return to the valley. Those who like things rapid can get into the Alpine Coaster a weather-resistant toboggan run that snakes its way into the valley over a distance of 2.6 km. Those who like things more calm can float gently and cosily down with the Kolbensesselbahn chairlift.

Culinary enjoyment is ensured at the Kolbensattel Lodge with regional products. There is space there for 100 people on the large sun terrace when the weather is good. However, the cosy parlour also offers space for 130 guests. Since the Kolbensattel Lodge is a musician-friendly inn, music groups are also welcome.

As further attractions, the Kolbensattel offers an alpine adventure playground in direct proximity to the Kolbensattel Lodge and a climbing forest. Along with a ride on the Alpine Coaster, we can also offer you an interesting programme for an acolyte or parochial trip.

There’s something for everyone in the family hiking area in Oberammergau:

Hike at several levels: cosily in the Ammer valley, along high-altitude paths with magnificent views or right up over the summits of the Ammergau Alps!



Bikepark OberammergauOn six various trails – ranging from natural to paved, from easy to difficult – the bike park has something for everyone

Just like on a marble run, the Focus Flowtrail, for example, meanders on a seemingly endless journey through the forest.

In the valley, there is a pump track and a training course as well as a bike shop, a bike school, a café and a bar.
